While their brothers, boyfriends, and husbands took up arms, these women went to the nation’s capital with sharpened pencils-and even sharper minds-taking on highly demanding Top Secret work, involving complex math and linguistics. Running early computers and poring over reams of encrypted enemy messages, they worked tirelessly in makeshift buildings in Arlington and Washington, DC, from 1942 to 1945. Through extensive research and interviews conducted with code girls, Mundy hones in on the lives and labors of several exemplary code-breakers while weaving their stories among the larger events of the war and the daily activities of the codebreakers.

Ordered by military officials never to reveal their war work, these women and their accomplishments were all but written out of history until Mundy discovered a cache of recently declassified documents at the archives of the NSA. Mundy brings to life this riveting story of American courage, service, and scientific accomplishment.
